Every semester, undergraduate and graduate University classes visit the Spurlock for a museum tour with a twist—course-specific artifacts pulled for a special viewing. Working with course instructors, we select artifacts that support lesson plans and course themes. A tour is then arranged that allows students to get a close-up view the artifacts in person.

With over 50,000 artifacts from around the world, the Museum collection illustrates the human story and is an educational resource for everyone on campus. We have worked with a variety of departments, including History, Anthropology, Classics, English, even Dance; and we want to work with you.

If you are teaching a University class and are interested in coordinating a museum visit with a specialized artifact discussion, please contact us to begin booking your visit. We are already scheduling for Spring, so you can have your visit confirmed when you plan your syllabi.

You may also wish to review the Course-related Artifact Review program details first.
